you right in the pocket. >> absolutely, steve. the medicare and social security is absolutely front and center in the senior community. when you think about the super committee making decisions that are going to affect us, we're highly concerned about the -- the integrity with which those decisions will be made. will they really understand the needs of the senior community? will they really be thinking about seniors as they create legislation? one of the things that -- the promises made in the election of campaign of 2008, was that legislation would be open and transparent. >> good one. >> and -- >> whatever happened to that? >> to be a part of that, you know, and quite frankly, what concerns me most of all through this whole process is everything has been behind closed doors. we have no idea what's going on. >> right, and in fact, the president signed the bill yesterday privately. a picture was released from the white house but there wasn't a big ceremony. chris, going forward, i know you feel that your former commander in chief let you down. how? >> well, i think that we've u
put people back to work. >> it's all mixed in together. i mean, just to talk about what steve was saying there. in the first day after they solved the debt ceiling crisis, they spent -- the u.s. government spent $239 billion. that's 60% of what they're supposed to spend in a week. which is $400 billion. is that scary? the u.s. government is spending $400 billion a week and in the first day, they spent 630%. if you think this debt ceiling debate is going away, it ain't. because that's how much dough they're spending in one day and yet, they're going to talk and get together to cut $1.5 trillion which would kind of be a drop in the bucket. >> before he was elected president of the united states, he was a law professor, does he have the experience to run the bigst economy in the world? fast forward now. here we are. he's the president, we're in economic trouble. eric cantor told "the wall street journal", the president is in over his head. >> when you ask what kind of negotiator he is, to me, it is -- it is not someone who has a grounding in what business is about in this count
us? >> steve, we just went down into the hotel lobby, the reporters are basically in the hotel where we've been for months trying to cover this conflict under heavy scrutiny and basically run into six armed men who say police officers are protecting the hotel but basically say we cannot leave. we're still waiting to go and do our jobs, get out on the streets and report these events. they are saying to us you can't leave and they're citing the fact that there's too many snipers in this area. i'll caution the figure of 95% of the army, 20% in pro government and pro qaddafi hands still including that compound you spoke of which is no more than, you know, a kilometer, half a kilometer behind the hotel where, you know, there's still some holdouts putting up stiff resistance there so right now, we're caught between the lines but we're hoping, you know, that some short time, we can actually get out and start looking and speaking to the people and find out what's going on here. >> how did this go from a stalemate with no end in sight to the collapse of tripoli with very little bloodshed? wha
of iowa kicking the race into high gear. >> man, there some fireworks last night. steve brown is live in ames with some recap. good morning to you, steven. there was a lot going on there, wasn't there? >> there was a bunch. steve, gretchen, clayton, all good morning. gretchen, got to ask you, what's up with the candidates from your home state? i thought minnesota nice was a law if your state. last night, it was revoked obviously and it had michelle bachmann and tim pawlenty spending much of the evening going at each other. here is yet one small example of that exchange. have a listen. >> she says that she's fighting for these things. she fought for less government spending. we got a lot more. she led the effort against obama care. we got obama care. she led the effort against tarp. we got tarp. she said she's got a titanium spine, it's not her spine we're worried about, it's her record of results. if that's your view of effective leadership with results, please stop because you're killing us. >> wait. >> you were governor in minnesota, you implemented cap and trade in our state. an
luckily but home to a lot of devastation, unfortunately. >> steve, will you lend gretchen your plane next time? >> i'll lend her my lack of electricity. now day five no electricity in our house. >> me, too. >> i got it back last night. you are welcome to a sleepover. i have a blow up mattress. >> i have the one flashlight i've been using it for five days, shaved with it this morning. >> we have so many trees down, i have no idea when power will be restored. stay tuned for next week. headlines for this wednesday, the latest on the aftermath from hurricane irene. u.s. blackhawk helicopters delivering much needed supplies to people in vermont this morning. more than a dozen towns left stranded because roads and bridges are washed out. the situation just as dire in new jersey. towns near the passaic river being evacuated as floodwaters continue to rise. some people being rescued by boat from their homes. >> i know people in the communities that i visited say wayne and fairfield have dealt with something like this before. but this is the worst that any of them have seen. i saw just extraordi
this but nonetheless, the meter is running. >> certainly is. as the day ticks down. good morning, steve, gretchen and peter. it appears president obama should get out his bill signing pen. he may need it sometime after around noon today to sign new legislation raising the nation's debt ceiling. the house voted 259-161 to pass, to raise america's borrowing limit. immediately $400 billion and then by another $1.5 to $2 trillion over time. while the top senate democrat wasn't making any promises, he suggests that the bill should pass the senate. >> i'm a long time member of congress. and i never count my votes until they're cast. so i'm hopeful but know that the republicans are going to have to produce some votes and we're going to have to produce some votes and i'm not here to declare victory. we have to get this thing passed. >> while it does appear that there is enough bipartisan support in the senate to get it to the president to sign, one of the top tea party republicans in the senate intends to vote against it. and suggests that the $2 trillion in spending cuts and spending caps don't go far
three years ago. tonight, correspondent steve brown looks at what has changed for president since then. and what has not. >> iowa launched barack obama. he won the democratic caucuse caucuses, brbreezed to take the state in the general election. >> obama for america. >> looking ahead to 2012. >> at the end of the day, the field organization wins these things. it always is. it always has been. it always will be. >> the ace up the president's sleeve in iowa is organization. the huge crowds of three years ago were the result of a large and deep operation, much of which still exist. plus. >> we still got the 35,000 vote edge over the republicans. >> but that's down substantially from the 110,000 register voter edge democrats had in 2008. >> that is putting a chill down the side of david axelrod and the gang in chicago. iowa is competitive territory. >> on the marquee campaign issue of jobs, iowa unemployment is 6%, lower than the national average of 9.1%. the state lost over 21,000 manufacturerring job since the 2008 election. that economic unease was a factor in the 2010 gubernatorial rac
idea, steve. i'll try to give you a sense of what's gonna happen today first before we get to the details that we have. the house will meet this morning at 10:00 and they meet again at 12:00 noon for legislative business and they'll have to dispense with several suspension bills before they get to the deal that was worked out of last night. so we expect debate in both houses as early as this afternoon or this evening. as far as the bipartisan agreement that was worked out last night, there's likely to be a lot of dissension within the far right and far left in both houses. let's get to a graphic that has details on the deal that was worked out last night. the debt ceiling is going to be raised $2.1 trillion through the year 2012 under the deal worked out last night. it will cut a trillion dollars right now with a commensurate $800 billion increase in the debt ceiling right now. and then later, a special committee of congress composed of three republican house members, three democratic house members, three republican senators, three democratic senators will work out another
. but it gets three, four feet deep, in big trouble. >> as you pointed out, steve, this already being an already wet season we've broken the all-time wettest month here in new york city with some saying more than ten inches still to come in the next 24 hours, we've already broken the wettest month here in new york city. 16.85 inches, so, it's going to shatter the all-time wettest month here in new york city. >> you saw the pictures from virginia. elizabeth has been in virginia beach covering the hurricane. elizabeth, we're starting to see daylight out there. not looking too bad. >> a pretty day. >> you look lovely. >> thank you. >> that's the update there. >> i know you guys have a long road ahead of you. look behind me, auf long day of wind and rain what we're seeing now is what you will eventually see and i have good news, when we first started this morning, winds were about 50 miles per hour and they have he' dropped to 29 miles per hour, an indicator that hurricane irene is moving and look at the stand behind me, we saw 24 foot waves at the peak of the storm and the water was all the way up
't worry, he says he has a plan. steve? >> what is it? meanwhile, london is burning. the city erupting into flames overnight as violent riots grow for a third straight day. latest details moments away. "fox & friends" up early on this tuesday starts now. >> hey, this is boone pickens. you're watching "fox & friends." great show. watch it every morning. >> thank you very much for that endorsement and good morning, folks. we are up 5:00 a.m. eastern here in new york city. good morning to you, eric. >> good morning, steve dooszy. i got to tell you last night, i was here until 11:00 watching the markets. it's something very scary going on. around 10:00, the markets were down 100 points. it looks like there was no bottom at sight. we went 350 points lower at one point last night atop of that number right there. 634. literally 1,000 points for the day at one point. we closed the market and closed the show down and we woke up this morning and somehow, we have a little bit a bounceback. >> a little bit. >> a little bit of a bounceback. >> people are wondering about the asian markets and euro
a minimum, steve. >> absolutely. nikkei index finished down something like 2%. right now, i was looking at the european stock market and, you know, it's pretty much down one, two, almost 3%. and the dow right now is down, what, 238 points right now as we speak. so it's really moving lower. >> that's not good for us. for more reaction, let's go to fox news reporter jennifer davis joining us live from our d.c. bureau. good morning to you. >> good morning, guys. all eyes on the global markets today to see how they react to news of this s&p downgrade. u.s. stock futures have tumbled. asian markets down. what's going to happen on wall street? that's the million dollar question today. the news from s&p came after those markets had closed on friday. downgrade going from triple a status down one notch to double a plus. s&p says this is a reflection not only of the political gridlock in washington and fact that the ratings agency doubts whether or not lawmakers can come together to work this problem out but also about the fact that they say that debt ceiling deal last week didn't cut enough. s&p
newschannel debate in ames, iowa, ahead of the straw poll that's going to happen this weekend. steve brown is on the campus of iowa state university, bright and early this morning, you're on central time, steve. welcome and good morning. >> we are. >> good morning and go cyclones! good morning, gretchen, steve, peter, you need an actual a full inhale before you say the name of tonight's debate is the fox news washington examiner republican party of iowa republican candidates debate. and that takes a full breath but if you're going to take a look at the combatants in this particular debate, let's talk about first the arguably the candidate that has been most in the move in the polls and that would be michelle bachmann. you could argue that based on her performances in the two nationally televised debates so far, that has helped propel michelle bachmann up into the top tier of the presidential candidates for the g.o.p. now, it is interesting in that we've got to debate and then we've got an actual measurable event coming up on saturday which is the straw poll and the chairman of the state p
and the dax had been down. >> important to note, we have this exact same thing play out monday night, steve, i'm sorry, sunday night, monday morning. we were sitting here and talking on the couch. the asian markets were very weak sunday night. last night, we were doing the show on the fox business network. i was sitting there watching, hosting the show. we went down from down 100 futures again but indicating a lower opening to down 200, to down 300. to down 350. we put the asian markets to bed. we woke up this morning in europe, again, floated the boat a little bit like it had yesterday. problem is when the u.s. markets open up, that's when the selling came back and it really -- the markets started to tank once again but right now, we're sitting up a little bit. up a little bit. but it's a great improvement from late last night. >> do you agree with the fact that it was oversold yesterday so we might see a bounce today? >> no, gretchen, because these are big things. this is the first time ever u.s. downgrade of american debt. this is a -- this isn't an overbought, oversold or just money is mo
to break right now. let's go over to steve and peter for another segment. >> thanks so much, gretch. he's very clear they're not going to tolerate anything over there. a turbulent stock market and a struggling economy has many americans and even the mainstream media, the mainstream media now questioning president obama. >> if i don't have this done in three years, then there's going to be a one term proposition. >> there you are, mr. axelrod, that was the president at the start. we're getting right up to that three year point. is this going to be a one term presidency? >> i think the question is what this election -- first of all, let's -- let's certify that we have -- we're in a different place than we were the day he did that interview. >> we are. things are worse. >> things are worse. he's right. is the mainstream media now souring on the president? joining us now is l.a. times columnist andrew malcolm. good morning. >> good morning, how are you today? >> fine, how would you answer that question? is the mainstream media now souring on the president? in the wake of what's gone on
will be able to fly out of the country and evade justice for his crimes. steve harrigan streaming live yet again tonight in tripoli. steve, what's the mood there tonight? >> shepard besides the obvious and loud one of jubilation the one emotion you can senses specially among the young rebel fighters some of them very young in their teens is pride. i saw one young rebel fighter walking in a t-shirt holding -- slowly stepping with his shoulders back. these young rebels, some of them have been fighting against qaddafi for the past six months. even though they got a great deal of help from nato warplanes which really paved the way, they feel and there are thousands of them that they just won a war that they just defeated dictator. amateur army they just defeated a professional army and liberated their country there is a great sense of pride among the men who took part in this fight and it's really their moment to celebrate which they have been doing all day and now into the night, shepard. >> shepard: what's their priority now, steve? finding qaddafi or seem more focused on wiping out his supp
the barbecue, people come running. it was hard enough to keep steve and i away from it this morning. you have the sweet pulled pork, all of that. >> people are sitting out at picnic tables at 6:00 a.m. stop on by if you're heading to work today. 8:00 hour, we'll have the special performance live right here on "fox & friends." one of our friends today dropping by to fill in for the vacationing brian kilmeade. good morning to you. >> thank you for having me. >> good to see you from the weekend show. let's do a couple of headlines because the fear that gripped wall street traders are spreading around the world. this morning, we're seeing strong selloffs in markets in asia and europe. >> will we have a repeat today of what happened on wall street? joining us right now is dennis neil on the streets of new york city. dennis, how does it look? >> you know what? the do or die time now. we were down 4%, 5% in u.s. stocks. europe is trading down maybe 2%. will we actually see a turn back to the positive or will investors say no, you know what? it's even worse than i thought yesterday. this jobs numbe
and what is the same. wall street journal and editor. dan, and columnist mary ogradey and steve moore. mary annie, are we headed for another recession? >> i wish i knew. on the one side, you have a lot of talk about what glate shape corporate balance sheets are in. but the national fed federation of business. >> that is the small businesses. >> it declined for the fifth month in a row and 10 percent of the small business owners said that only 10 percent expected an increase in employment and 11 percent said they expected to have fewer workers over the next 3months. small business is such a key to the health of the economy that if the small business sector is so negative, it is not a good sign about the health of the recovery. >> steve comparison with 2008, are all over the place. are we better or worse off going into thoo recession? >> i don't think it is 2008 again. i believe what is happening with the u.s. economy is a repudiation of obama nomics. virtually everything that obama has done with the respect to the economy is negative in my opinion and led to more unemployment. this is a repu
before the liberation of libya is complete. our steve harrigan streaming live again tonight from tripoli. what are you seeing there tonight, steve. >> shepard, we are seeing a lot of gunfire, a lot of tracer fire. six months ago it was qaddafi forces firing those antiaircraft guns at nato airplanes. this time around, six months later, it is rebels. they are firing up into the air in celebration. probably those same guns. it is a little unusual though to see so much celebration in a city where there are still pockets of fighting and killing going on, shepard. >> shepard: everybody seems to be talking about qaddafi's whereabouts. but it never turns out to be true. >> a lot of rumors, some people say, is here in tripoli. ever -- other people speculate hometown of sirte. qaddafi had not been taken. he is determined to keep on fighting. his very presence out there really gives heart and support to those who want to resist this new government, shepard. >> shepard: steve harrigan live in early friday morning in tripoli. a major hurricane is on its way to the east coast. we're expecting an updat
pound in tripoli but so far, there is no sign of gaddafi or his sons. get a life update from steve harrigan in tripoli, just after midnight. good morning. i know you are taking cover from fire you have just seen and heard. >> reporter: bret, there is a small amount of small arms fire here on the street in tripoli. you have in the city pro-gaddafi and anti-gaddafi families living side-by-side. right now, there is not a power in place to keep the two sides apart. we also hear the shelling near the airport. so the fighting continues on what an historic day of victory for the rebels. >> simple of gaddafi power is no more. after being pounded all morning by nato warplanes, the libyan leaders compound but overrun by rebel fighters. looting, destruction and celebratory gunfire fired. toll of the intense fighting can be seen as rebels entered the street. for the colonel himself, the whereabouts are unknown. the sons say he appeared earlier in the day trying to rally support. >> it's our country. it's our people. we are here and here. we are going to win. because people are with us. >> repo
that moodd s & p could downgrade america's rating. steve, let me start with you. how likely do you think it is that there will be a downgrade by one or both agencies? >> hard to say at this point. the clangss maybe 50-50. but you think about even with this deal in place, instead of borrowing $9 trillion over the next 10 years we'll borrow $7 trillion. we haven't solved the debt problem. that's one reason the rating agent cities may downat this and say this isn't the historic break through we hoped for. shannon: if we assume we do lose the triple aaa credit rating, what happens next. does it impact the every day life of americans? >> it's not clear. some countries had downgrades, note reply canada, as you thail trail yeah and japan. but the united states is in a different situation. our deficits are out of control. the congress is pickerring in way. it's not address the structural problems. the package is hardly a package but a promise. if we get downgrade now or after the election, then i think we'll face higher interest rates because this congress hasn't don't work that been put before
until prices come down. i am david asman welcome to forbes on fox. we'll go to steve and mike and victoria and morgan . victoria, are rising prices hurting the job market? >> sure they are. the data is in and we are seeing acceleration in higher prices is bad news for two reasons. one more unpredictable force in the economy that makes business owners scared unlikely to hire. they will pull back and it shows they are limited in what they can do to spoke growth. that is a clamp on everything. >> it could not have happened in a worst time. market is killed on thursday. it is a worst time for the thing. >> inflation, david doesn't kill jobs but distort the job market. >> what do you mean in false jos. like extra energy . in 1980s. it is a clamp down and sell off assets and you create false jobs and hurt jobs in productive industries and future industries. here we go doing it again. >> and we are looking at depressing figures with jobs connected to the stock market. >> i think so. it is a classic prescription for stag-flation . producer priced inflation and consumers are not gettin
out for the good sound bite. conspondant steve brown as the blow by bloww. [applause] >>reporter: less than two days before the iowa straw poll bachmann and pawlenty went at it. >> it is an unkiss putable fact in congress her record of accomplishments and results are nonexistent. >> when you were governor in minnesota you implemented cap and trade. >> she fought for less government spen we got more. led the effort against obama care and we got it. led the effort against tarp. >> i gave them a run for the money. cap and trade, i was there giving speaker pelosi a run for her money. >> those were far from the debate fireworks. gingrich bristled if his campaign was a mess. >> i would love to see the rest of tonight's debate asking us what what to do about america about a president who failed to lead instead of mickey mouse gangs. >> he got buzz including blogers most of which called gingrich a winner and helped himself. but the sentiment was not unanimous . one said he shot himself in the foot . pros sanction candidate got into it with ron paul. >> iran is a counselry that is at war with u
with steve harrigan live in tripoli where it's just after midnight. good morning, steve. >> bret, the city of tripoli is once again rocking with the sound of gunfire. all day long we saw and heard young men, who of whom have been fighting the gaddafi regime for six months, firing up in the air. now through the night it's the same stair. antiaircraft gun firing in celebration as well. this is despite the fact there remains much fighting still to be done. >> fighting continues in pockets in tripoli. intensifying throughout the day. by gaddafi's come pound that rebels captured yesterday. inside of the compound is ransacked. debris left similar to that, littering the streets around the city. proregime snipers targeted the road leading to tripoli's airport. while rebels manned various check points throughout the city, performing searches on vehicles. as rebels push ahead, the international focus turns to a humanitarian mission. unfreezing libyan access to aid those affected by months of brutal fighting. meanwhile, dozens of international journalist held captive in a hotel for five days by the g
it in positive light, steve. is this somewhat of a relief to them? that the president has done this. they don't have to vote on this issue. essentially, supporting those who have grown up and want to contribute to the country and serve the military and go to college. people like senator mccain and others who have said this, but then they don't have to vote on it. >> i don't think it is. because this doesn't solve the broader problem. the reason this is objectionm beyond what we mentioned here it doesn't come in the right context. if it were part of a broader legislative package that would do some of the things that charles is talk about ta, would strengthen border security, in that context, you can see people saying well, we have to do this kind of prioritization. and this is the way we ought to do it. but in the absense of that kind of broader argument, you are not actually going anything to solve the problem. so this in effect is making perpetuating the problem rather than solving it. >> down the line, is this upheld in the court? >> probably, yes. probably. the president has a lot of leewa
'll call the straw poll. they say it's a circus, looks like fun. steve brown is there live in ames and we've got to ask you, steve. what have you sampled? it's a political carnival. the only place i can think of where you can sign a wind blade from one of the huge wind turbines, energy generating turbines. and that's here and folks that generate electricity make the turbines, want to tell folks, hey, we would like the attention of voters as well. this is the line to get into the beef sundays offered by the michele bachmann campaign. some of them have been in line 45 minutes and that's an indication of not only perhaps how good the sundae is about you how big the draw in her particular tent. by the way, is air conditioned. that's an air conditioned tent up over that way. michele bachmann is in line to be a traditional winner. at least a favorite to come out on top in terms of the vote total when all of these folks get done voting by the end of the day and the polls close at four o'clock central time and that will be five o'clock eastern. but rick santorum also has an opportunity to win and
, and interesting, you guys think it was interesting. okay. i have a crowd here. let's bring in our panel. steve hayes . karen. national political correspondant for the washington post and jeff with the new york times. they are all up the road in ames and we are here in the iowitate fair. teave, first to you. thoughts about the debate and how it affects the brand picture and this race? >> i thought it was a good debate and lots of interesting exchanges and revealed what the candidate hope to do with the debate going into the straw poll. tim pawlenty takog michelle bachmann and she returned fire. rick sanatorium expressing himself . newt gingrich to arise from the slumber that he's been in . i think you have a bunch of candidates doing a lott of things and giving an energiic push going into the traw poll. what you didn't have is much much a vision. there was not a big moment for any of the candidates where voters sitting at home would say yes, that is my guy or woman. this is why i am a conservative or a republican. nothing that expressed a broader vision of republican governorinance in the way r
tasting freedom some for the first time in their lives. steve harrigan streaming live from tripoli. steve, this fight is not over. there sal sound makes -- the sound it makes when it's being used to try to kill someone. we have been hearing both those sounds throughout the night as there has been pockets of at the same time the rebels celebrate that historic victory today. as far as official battles between the two sides, there is one going on right now around the international airport in tripoli. there is a likely battle too shaping up around the city sirte. qualify's hometown. two kinds of people. people who prophetted from the qaddafi regime and families who had members killed or tortured by that same regime. keeping them apart is going to be the real challenge. right now there is no referee, shepard. >> new clues as to where qaddafi may be, steve? troops heading toward hometown. capturing him, putting him on trial is what the rebels want to do. that is certainly their goal. another goal is to try to avoid what happened in iraq some years ago similar type pictures we have seen today. d
and joining us from washington, steve moore, senior economics writer for the "wall street journal." now, steve, i know that our principles, you are opposed to what cynthia tucker just proposed. you think extending these unemployment benefited a infinitum is bad, bad, bad. let me ask you something, if you pull away extended unemployment benefits from people who are out of work. doesn't that hurt the economy because then they don't have money to spend and that hurts the shop owners, that hurts, you know, people who are providing their gas and utilities because they can't pay their bills and then the economy stalls even worse. >> you don't create jobs and employment by paying people to stay unemployed. that's essentially what the unemployment insurance program does. look, i don't have a problem with providing someone with three or six months of unemployment benefits if they fall hard on their luck and lose their jobs. as you know, juan, we are now paying people almost two years of benefits and the statistics in evidence is very clear on this. the longer you provide people unemployment benefits, t
man who carries a lot of weight with these voters isn't on my ballot, but he is on the radio. steve brown says he has a knack for heating things up. >> all right. finish the sentence for me 'cause we have heard this a million times. it's not ron paul i don't like. it's ron paul's supporters. >> supporters. >> the des moines register calls him a conservative blow torch. >> the problem pawlenty has is he didn't stand up to the high school quarterback and now he's picking on the captain of the cheerleading squad. >> now he's back on the radio air waves and that's bad news for the republican presidential field. >> what i want to do this time is traumatize pretty much all of them. >> he's part of a new iowa breed of republican activists. >> there is a new crop of evangelical conservatives who are unbending, uncompromising, and are tired of being told one thing when another thing happens and he is the mouthpiece of that movement. >> tim has seen when that mouthpiece can do. he worked for mitt romney's 08 iowa campaign and dace detests romney. >> with mitt romney, he has no record on any i
griffin monitoring the developments from the pentagon. but we begin with correspondent steve harrigan live in zentan, south of tripoli. good evening. >> reporter: right now they say that muammar gaddafi is still inside the country of libya but not saying specific whereabouts. it's unclear where he is. the latest unconfirmed reports have him heading to algeria. we spent 11 12 hours with rebels on the way to the capital with the special help from nato, high-tech help, rebel fighters in the capital say they need at this point is gasoline. we're going with a 5,000 gallon gas tanker to help supply rebels in their fight. one of the key weapon in the battle is a pickup truck used to mount vehicle and move the troops around. finally over the past 24 hours with the rebel officials we notice a sea change in mood. just 24 hours ago there was a sense of jubilation, ecstasy, the rumors they captured gaddafi and walked in tripoli and would take the capital. that has changed dramatically with the push back by the government forces. and the ensuing casualties there is a sense here of real momentum and it'
is next for apple and steve jobs. but, first from fox at 3:00, a category three storm moving to the east coast of the united states and the forecasters warn it could be very destructive. the director of the national hurricane center says look at this chart. most of the eastern seaboard will be in the storm's path. do not worry too much where the eye comes ashore because everybody along the coast is going to get it. this storm is very big and very wet on both sides from north carolina and up to new england and not just the coastal areas, inland people, pay attention, the navy ordering dozens of ships stationed in virginia to head to sea. officials say possible destructive winds make it too risky to be in port. the storm is expected to hit north carolina first, and the governor declaring a state of emergency near the coast. today, she asked the president to declare a federal emergency. >> irene is a big storm. packing a huge wind. perhaps 115 to 120 miles per hour. we know there will be strong surges regardless of how close she comes to our coast. >>shepard: 100,000 members of the national
, rebels putting a $2 million bounty on qaddafi's head. steve harrigan is streaming live from tripoli. steve, any word on qaddafi? >> reporter: gregg, right now, unk*frpl dollars reports -- unconfirmed reports saying qaddafi and two of his sons are surrounded an an apartment building near tripoli near the colonel's compound. fighting is going on there and keep in mind there's been a real credibility gap from both sides so this information is unconfirmed as of now. the hunt for qaddafi is intense, it is continuing, british officials have just said that nato assets are being used, intelligence gathering assets in hunt for qaddafi, but no confirmation that he is in fact surrounded at this point inside a group of apartments in tripoli. as that hunt goes on, the celebrations across the city of tripoli are continuing. >> they arrived in homemade vehicles, homemade weapons, the fire was in the air, rocket launchers, antiair craft guns. women, men and children enjoy the show, some cover their ears, but the message, expressed, guns, cars, anything at hand, it's clear, we've won the war. >> we'
is causing fear in the markets. for more, we're joined by steve moore of the "wall street journal," joining us by phone. steve, there's been a lot said about the health of banks, particularly in europe, -- in europe, and that is involved with what's happening in the markets now. what can you tell us about that? >> i'm getting motion sickness with this stock market over the last week! i was one of those people that has talked about last week that bought on a dip so i'm not feeling so good about things today, but you know, i think one of the major triggers for the selloff today was the european banks, this crisis of debt in europe is not subsiding, there's a real concern now that germany may have to come in and essentially bail out the european central bank. so there is real panic with respect to the banks in europe, and what's happening, jenna, if you look at the market today, what's really getting creamed is american banks, as this kind of contagion and virus seems to be spreading to these shores. jenna: and so what is the takeaway for us, steve? because you look back in 2008, i mean, we we

for deportation. critics call this backdoor amnesty that has not gone through congress. bring in the panel. steve hayes, for stand stand. arn"weeklystandard." nina easton. and charles krauthammer. >> one thing, this reflects a political calculation, a realistic calculation by the president. the approval ratings are kind of falling like untethered elevator at this point. he is in the doghouse with the latino voters. he came in with the expectation there would be some level of immigration reform. instead what he focused on is deportation to tune of 400,000 a year. that has the lay te know community extremely angry. so he is moving, i think moving toward the policy. yes, it's a backdoor policy. i think that the problem with it is that it misses the component when you leave people here, it misses the component of amnesty, which most of the public supports, which earning your way here. it's too bad that the political atmosphere became so poisonous over this question of path to citizen, by the way, three-quarters of the american people supports that we, the he is not going through the front door with t
